Skylight has an official launch date! The game will be coming to the Gear VR on January 12th, 2017.
For those who need a short introduction (or a long one), Skylight is a turn-based tactics game in which you control a fleet of ships battling in space. You control them through a holographic interface on your flagship. The ships fight in real time, but the battle pauses periodically to allow you to change your fleet’s orders, resulting in “simultaneous-turn-based” gameplay.
Here’s a quick idea of what that looks like:
There will be a lot more to talk about in the coming weeks! If you’re interested in the game and want to learn more about it, keep an eye on this blog. I’ll be posting detailed descriptions of Skylight’s gameplay, ship types, multiplayer features, and campaigns. I’ll be cross-posting them to reddit, Twitter, and Facebook too.
So close! Enjoy some new screenshots while you wait:
